Hollywood plans to explore the origins of oil in the movie “The Sands of Fortune”
Los Angeles, August 26: Hollywood is now planning a movie that will explore the origins of oil in Saudi Arabia. The movie is titled “Sands of Fortune”.
The film will also explore the development of Aramco, the world’s largest oil and natural gas exporter.
The idea was first confirmed by Israeli producer and entrepreneur Uri Singer on Aug. 22, before he announced the name of the project on Aug. 25 and detailed his interest in making the film, according to Deadline.
The historical drama tells the true story of the partnership between American geologist Max Steinke and Bedouin woman Khamis Bin Rimthan, who together discovered the first oil well in the country in 1938, known today as Dammam No. 7.
Stinky was a famous geologist known for his resolute nature and adventurous spirit, while Remthan was a member of the Amjan Bedouin tribe with deep knowledge of the desert and served as a mentor to American geologists prospecting for oil in the 1930s.
In a previous interview, Singer said, “The Aramco story is a testament to human ingenuity and the amazing impact that one discovery can have on the world. This is a story that all Saudis know, but I think the whole world will know soon.” Be as intrigued as I was when I first heard about this.”
The script will be written by Bernie Campbell, a longtime strategist and speechwriter who spent years in Saudi Arabia and was the first American to write for the country’s royal family.
“We’ve been working together on this for a while,” Singer said. “Bernie is the perfect fit to bring this story to life, especially given his experience on the ground in Saudi Arabia.”
Apart from discovering the oil and petroleum surroundings of the country, as well as the assets of Aramco, the film will also seek to explore how Aramco became the most dominant oil industry in the world, and how Aramco also exploited its power, retaining all the power in the exports of energy resources.
